Consumers will also have more choice as Kraft Nuts add new peanut butter varieties – Kraft Cinnamon Spice Peanut Spread Smooth and Kraft Sweet Honey Peanut Spread Smooth. Australia’s first crunchy hazelnut spread – alongside their best selling Peanut Butter.

Justin Taylor, Category Marketing Manager for Spreads at Kraft Nuts, comments, “Australians are going nuts for alternate nuts and this trend can be seen across a number of categories including milk, snacking and now spreads. As the nut category has expanded and shown more functionality as a snack and an ingredient, so too has the push for more variety in nut spreads – with consumers demanding more choice. As the maker of Australia’s favourite Peanut Butter, we’ve launched eight new varieties ranging from Hazelnut to Almond that we know nut fans will love.”
Mr Taylor continues, “Kraft Nuts is showcasing its commitment to these new products by investing in a multi-million dollar integrated campaign. Spanning TV, POS, digital and PR, the campaign will launch across Australia in March.”
Kraft Cashew Spread, Kraft Almond Spread, Kraft Hazelnut Smooth, Kraft Hazelnut Crunchy are available on-shelf now. Kraft Natural Peanut Butter Smooth, and Kraft Natural Peanut Butter Crunchy will be available from 23 February.
